"Victor Harbor looks run down"

Victor Harbor looks like it needs a makeover. The main street is confusing and cars make it dangerous for young ones.

"Restaurants very average"

We came to spend a quiet evening together. Were impressed with each otheri but not with the food we were served. It was average service with average food. Never again.

"great beaches- no decent restaurants tho"

thought as it is a tourist town more restaurants would be found. coffee shops are slow and not very cheap or clean. henley beach is far better. not sure if we would recomend Victor.

"Its very offensive"

The shops are empty and those open need training in customer service. They also charge too much and have little to see as the shops are very small. Its a town deprived of charm and looks tired.

"Dirty little town and untidy with street bums."

Our friends joined us for a weekend in Victor Harbor. We were stumped where to take them. It is very different from the brochures. The coffee establishments are not any good and everyone looks like they are on Government welfare or homeless. It was a lot different from when we came as kids.

"Was surprised at the less than average service. I was very shocked at the lack of places open."

Not what it once was is all I can say. It is tacky and run down now.

"Dont buy in Victor Harbor"

Buy in Encounter Bay or McCracken... much younger people. Victor Harbor is a giant retirement village, with the emphasis on village. ( village idiots everywhere)

"a beautiful place to be"

a great town with a family friendly atmosphere.
Markets every weekend, beaches and parks with easy access as well as plenty of accomodation.
Couldn't imagine a better family holiday place or an easy and friendly place to live..

"A thriving coastal town with lots to offer"

Busy Victor Harbor! This thriving seaside town has exploded to become the huge hub of the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Just 80 kilometres and about an hour south of Adelaide, Victor Harbor is a tourist hotspot which bustles all year round. Victor Harbor offers a stunning beaches along the magnificent South Coast, and lots of good fishing and boating around the safe and protected Encounter Bay. There are a couple of good golf courses, such as McCracken and Victor Harbor Golf Course.

The climate is mild. Quite cool in winter, and generally sunny in summer with the occasional scorcher of 35 degrees plus.

Victor Harbor has also become a popular retirement destination. There are lots of social activities, including lawn bowls and the local RSL Hall. Subdivisions and retirement villages are rapidly growing.

House prices along the waterfront are absolutely huge, but there is good value just a few streets back. With all of the services, shopping and facilities you need, and easy access around the town, Victor Harbor is a lovely spot to visit, to raise your family or to retire.
